Not Quite Verbatim
Jay Chung and Q Takeki Maeda, D’Ette Nogle, Amie Siegel, Audra Wolowiec
curated by Max Fields

Not Quite Verbatim brings together artists who use interviews and related forms of recorded conversation as a medium, motif, site, and apparatus to examine the slippery relationships between utterance, context and subjective interpretation. Through reflection on varied forms of recorded conversation, these artists expose the embedded tropes and conventions that reinforce underlying conditions of performance, socio-historical omission, and authorial limitation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue, designed by Houston-based designer Amanda Thomas, featuring texts by the curator and commissioned and reproduced texts by participating artists.
